Ingredients

4 each egg yolks
*
¾ cup sugar
2 ¼ cups chestnuts
peeled, chopped
*
2 tablespoons dark rum
1 cup almonds
shelled
*
5 each egg whites
*
Cream
3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
semi-sweet, null, null
1 cup heavy whipping cream
whipped
Glaze
3 tablespoons apricot preserves (jam)
1 tablespoon dark rum

Directions

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Beat yolks and sugar until very light and fluffy.

This will take several minutes even with an electric beater.

The end product should have an off-white color.

Add chestnuts and run to yolk-sugar mixture.

Blend together and add half the almonds.

Beat egg whites to stiff peaks and fold into mixture.

Next, fold in rest of almonds and pour mixture into a buttered, floured, 10x2½ inch spring mold.

Place filled mold in oven.

After 10 minutes, reduce heat to 325℉ (160℃) and bake for 35 to 50 minutes more, until cake has pulled away slightly from sides of mold.

Remove from oven, let cool, unmold, and cut into two layers of equal thickness, leaving spring mold bottom attached to bottom of 1 layer.

Apply chocolate whipped cream to top of bottom layer and arrange the other layer on top of that.

Several hours before serving, glaze top of top layer with hot apricot glaze.

When glaze has set, prepare icing.

Balance cake in one hand, with hand under spring mold bottom, and dribble icing over top of cake.

Tilt cake back and forth to coat evenly.

Put cake on a rack and finish icing sides with a table knife or spatula.

Refrigerate until icing sets.
